Slowly and reluctantly, I am facing down the monster that is social media. I’ve not yet uncorked Twitter, but I’m starting to work on the blogs, although my time is unfeasibly scarce at the moment. After some research, I have decided not to switch to Disqus comments (since it cannot be reverted without loss of comments) and instead I have taken the drastic step of switching from requiring users to sign in to making sign in optional. This might result in a sudden tidal wave of spam – if so, I’ll have to go back on the decision. But in the interests of encouraging comments, and with the recognition that mandatory sign in was blocking some who wanted to comment, I’ve decided to shoulder this risk.
Nonsense is in production… maybe even before the end of the week!
